Strategies, Techniques and Tips:
The Brown Sculpin and White Belly Sculpin streamers are good flies to use for the
larger trout. It is almost alway best to fish a tandem Midge rig under a small strike
indicator with the midge lava as the bottom fly and the midge pupa as the top fly. Fish
the adult midge only when you observe trout feeding on the surface.
Green Sedges are hatching. October caddis are hatching.
Mahogany duns are hatching.
Spotted Sedges are hatching.
Terrestrials will soon become important - ants, beetles and grass hoppers.
